Storyline

Robert Eastwood is an innocent, brought up in a world of Born Again Christianity that's taught him to look for signs and to believe evil in waiting just outside the front door. When he goes to school he's shocked to discover that no one else thinks the world was made in 7 days or that Jesus will be returning. Caught between his Mother, who's determined to bring Jesus' love to a dead mining town, and his best friend Marcus who's introduced him to teenage rebellion Robert becomes the centre of a spiritual tug of war as he tries to escape his religious beliefs. It's then that he discovers a dead body in the woods and realises God has sent him a sign. The Devil Outside is a story of everyday madness.

Trivia

In the disco scene DJ Steve Gad was playing 'Jump around' by House Of Pain (which is why the actors are jumping) but the rights to using the songs was just too expensive, so another track was used in post production. See more »

A deliberately methodical slowly paced tale shrouded with biblical metaphors and demonic connotations.

7/10 🌠🌠🌠🌠🌠🌠🌠 = ( A small amount of Praise ) It's very difficult trying to categorize the genre of this film it isn't scary or terrifying but most would place it squarely in the horror category which it is of course but that's because of the subject matter and the brilliant way it was written, directed and filmed. But more to the point I felt as though the mystery surrounding certain characters overshadowed all other elements of the film which turns out to be a good thing because it leads to something at the end.

To say this film is a slow burner would be an understatement and it's never boring but at times you may get a little restless waiting for the film to develop from scene to scene and that doesn't happen until the last 5 minutes of the feature. This film also has a few visually stunning moments that creep along giving you ample time to digest what your being fed.

The acting was very good and perfectly fit the pace. I would recommend this movie for those who are patient and enjoy a slow developing tale of a story that's worth the wait.
